AFL-CIO and Affiliated Unions Creates Alliance for Retired Americans

May 3, 2010

Facilitates Lifelong Unionism

Retired union members now have a vehicle for lifelong membership; an organization to fight for their legislative interests on the national, state and local levels; and an organization committed to creating a movement to bring social and economic justice to American workplaces and society.  This new grassroots organization is the Alliance for Retired Americans.  It was created earlier this year by a national coalition of AFL-CIO-affiliated unions including the IBEW and community based organizations.

IBEW Votes

IBEW Votes is an ongoing effort to encourage all IBEW brothers and sisters to register to vote, stay informed on current events and local elections, and to get out and vote for policies and candidates that support working families.
